Have you ever heard someone say, “I know God can heal people, but I’m not sure He will heal me.” People tend to think they are not “good enough” to deserve God’s healing power. Or, they figure it’s too late for a miracle. Some even say that Jesus must not “want” them to be healed. We’ll…..guess what? That is NOT true.
Of all the miracles that Jesus performed while He was on earth, 73% of them were miracles of healing. That tells me that healing is a priority to Him. Jesus doesn’t heal people based on their worth. He heals them based on “His Word.” And it’s never too late for a miracle; just ask Lazarus who was raised up from the grave. As for those who think Jesus doesn’t “want” to heal them, read this…
Suddenly, a leper walked up to Jesus and threw himself down before Him in worship and said, “Lord, You have the power to heal me…if You really want to.” Jesus reached out His hand and touched the leper and said, “Of course I want to heal you— be healed!” And instantly, all signs of leprosy disappeared! (Matthew 8:2-3 The Passion Bible)
Let it be forever settled in your mind and your heart that Jesus WANTS to heal you! “But Pastor Kevin, how come everyone doesn’t get their healing?” I don’t have the answer for that. But, the Word of God shows us that Jesus healed EVERY SINGLE PERSON that came to Him and believed that He would heal them.
Look, we will all die someday unless Jesus comes back first. BUT, I don’t believe we have to leave this earth until we have accomplished everything God has given us to accomplish. The Apostle Paul said, “I have finished my course” before he checked out. And Jesus left after saying, “It is finished.” I have already outlived two death sentences and am working on my third one. Why? Because I don’t believe I am finished yet. AND I happen to be one of those fanatical Christians that believes that Jesus WANTS to heal me. So, stay tuned!!!
Remember….ONLY BELIEVE. (Mark 5:36)
